Christmas Eve was spent with the Paez family in Godoy Cruz. Milagros, Carla, and Sister Gabriella Paez (Bishop Paez took the picture).
The meal was very Argentine, which is a variety of meats (chicken, roast beef, tuna) with tomatoes and palm hearts, potatoes and eggs. The family traditionally will eat after 10:00 PM and then after midnight the festivities begin. The family then opens up their gifts and play games together. We listened to fireworks going off all over the city (big ones) from midnight until 4:00. Then the streets are quiet most of the day as people sleep in.
